(a) Statutory Basis. Article 103.0033 provides that
OCA may determine that it is not cost-effective to implement a program
in a county or municipality and grant a waiver to the requesting entity.

(b) Criteria for granting waivers. OCA will grant a
blanket waiver from implementation when the requesting entity demonstrates
  (1) The estimated costs of implementing the program
are greater than the estimated additional revenue that would be generated
by implementing the program; and
  (2) A compelling reason exists for submitting the waiver
request after the entity's published implementation deadline. The
requesting entity and OCA program staff each must submit documentation
supporting their cost and revenue projections to the administrative
director for determination.
(c) Temporary waivers. OCA will consider a request
to grant a temporary waiver for good cause that could not have been
reasonably anticipated. Such temporary waivers may be granted after
an audit to allow a program to correct deficiencies discovered during
the audit.
